During CHIC we hope to assist in cultivating eyes to see and ears to hear within students concerning God’s movement and work in the world concerning justice. Additionally, we anticipate fostering a heightened sensitivity within students concerning their awareness of how the Spirit might be prompting them to become involved in partnering in God’s work around these issues within their midst.
In addition to being thrilled about helping students deepen their understanding of what it means to become ambassadors of Christ in the world today, I’m ecstatic that we’ll have the opportunity to be led deeper into the heart of God through joining together in corporate worship by led by Lecrae! Lecrae is one of my favorite artists, he’s a seminary trained Christian hip-hop artist. His lyrics encompass a spiritual punch and a theological breadth that is a rarity within contemporary Christian music. This anointed man of God preaches a contextualized Gospel that exceedingly relevant for a generation infatuated with hip-hop culture, all the while, ensure that none of the substance of the Gospel gets lost in translation! Check out my favorite five tracks from Lecrae on your way to CHIC so you and your group can fully participate in the worship that he’ll lead us in this week.
Here’s my top 5 playlist from Lecrae:
1. After The Music Stops
4. Don’t waste your life
